Square becomes circus ring

The UniverSoul Circus will offer a sample of its entertainment during a free performance on Fountain Square from noon-1 p.m. Wednesday. The circus will be in Cincinnati Wednesday-Sunday at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds, 77th and Vine streets, Carthage. The Cincinnati Human Relations Commission has assisted the UniverSoul Circus during its three previous visits, and the circus has provided small performances for disadvantaged youth during those tours at the commission's request. Ticket information: (513) 562-4949.

Young driver restriction argued

Advocates for changing Ohio law to keep 16- and 17-year-olds from driving with an unlimited number of friends say more people in the car means more distractions, especially for inexperienced drivers. The Ohio Department of Public Safety, the AAA Ohio Motorists Association and others say changing the law would reduce the number of accidents that occur when young drivers are distracted or take unnecessary risks such as speeding. The rules could be as strict as no more than one passenger, other than a family member.
